Ella's Reflections -
- For me, the most meaningful and rewarding work is that which has a direct and positive impact on members of our community. I am committed to social justice and ensuring that a client's rights to legal advice and representation are protected.
Advice from a competent and experienced criminal lawyer before you are interviewed can and often does have a meaningful impact on the outcome of your case and in some instances, is the difference between whether your matter proceeds to court or not.
